I am particularly interested in narrative structure and analysis and have worked with various artists to develop their scripts based on their key objectives and motivations for making their work. Some examples include...
As Funny As Cancer
Created and performed by Beth Vyse (actor and comedian). Beth had already performed As Funny as Cancer on the Free Fringe in Edinburgh but wanted to develop it for a more traditional theatrical setting ahead of another run in Edinburgh followed by a national tour.
Written and performed by Katie Sherrard (actor). Katie approached me early on in the writing process with ideas she had for the show. I provided writing prompts, workshops and script feedback as well as directing the show for its performance at Pleasance Edinburgh followed by The King's Head in Islington.
Athena Kugblenu: Reality Check
Written and performed by Athena Kugblenu (comedian). Athena came to me with a ton of jokes and ample material for a set. We worked together to give the piece a bit more shape and flow ahead of her debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe.
